We selected the film Alternative Surf Craft for many good reasons. One of them being Trevor Gordon. His diverse wave riding skills are indicative of a new generation of well-rounded surfers, comfortable expressing themselves on a variety of surf craft. Enjoy Trevor's smooth as silk surfing in this epic edit by Jeff Chavolla.

As the tale goes, there exists a Shangri-La oasis right smack in the middle of America’s plains. Enter the timelessly stylish Leah Dawson in her quest to find a mythical wave in western surf film The Legend of the Iron Seahorse. Have fun!
Clean big waves a stone’s throw away. This one is just too good to hold back. The Rip Curl La Nord Challenge went off on December 17th with the local boys putting on a show and finishing on top.

Ever wondered how Shane Dorian got so good in big waves? It’s easy to forget that for a decade, the whole of his 20’s, he was on the pro tour and primarily known for his flawless technique. The Blueprint is Shane's video biography. It was directed by Chad Campbell and released in 2002. By that time Shane had already been featured in more than 60 surf videos as one of surfing’s very best.
